Vaidas Krūmas and Goda Baltuonė, Category Managers from Baltic Onboard Sales team, invited DFDS staff at Klaipėda offices to join a good cause – to donate blood to those who need it most.
Doctors and nurses at Klaipėda branch of the National Blood Centre were very happy to welcome DFDS staff. They noted a general increase in donations for the month of November by generous Klaipėda citizens, our colleagues included, with 1,177 donations in total.

Goda says: “Christmas time is a period when staff at the centre are in urgent need of donations. Vaidas and I felt we needed to raise awareness and encourage colleagues to join this initiative where we can help others and save lives. There are local DFDS staff who regularly visit this centre, however as an example, this initiative encouraged Robertas Kogelis to overcome small fears and donate blood for the first time in his life.”

“It wasn‘t as scary as it may seem,“ adds Robertas Kogelis, Director Onboard Sales Baltic Sea.
